May 1st 2014 Norwegian Industrial Workers Museum opened the exhibition “Heroes of Telemark” at Vemork, Rjukan.
This is an exciting exhibition with local character. It dramatizes the four famous sabotage operations against local heavy water production, but there is also much focus on all the other local missions during the war years in Rjukan. Our visitors are provided with great opportunity for direct interaction, reflection and further insight into the historical material from the Second World War at multiple levels. The exhibition is multimedial. It will give visitors a unique experience of being part of the events, and it challenges visitors to reflect on what it means to be a hero. We hope this exhibit will engage visitors of all ages.
